Astar's Craft: Olive Oil

Good Morning on TV ONE and TVNZ OnDemand.

Tips of its many uses –

Cooking is top of the list but, also excellent as

  • Massage oil
  • Moisturizer for normal dry and irritated skin
  • To loosen ear wax– just use a few drops in each ear and plug up with a small cotton ball
  • Screw jars – rub a little on the inside of screw top jars when making jams, pickles and preserves.  This will help to prevent rust and makes removing the lids much easier
  • A dot here and there will stop a squeaky door


Nourishing night cream –

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 3 drops lavender oil
  • 3 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp rainwater


  • Mix olive oil and cider vinegar together.
  • Add water and slowly mix until smooth white cream form appears.
  • Add oil.
  • Pour into jar and give a good shake before each use as the mixture will settle.
